Serves: 8 

  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 tin canellini beans
  • 2 cloves garlic, cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 roma tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1 pinch sea salt to taste
  • 1 pinch black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation:10min  ›  Extra time:2hours chilling  ›  Ready in:2hours10min 

  1. Place the pine nuts, basil, and oregano into a food processor. Cover, and pulse 2 or 3 times to finely grind the nuts. Add beans and garlic; process until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour in the lime juice, tomato, salt and pepper, and pulse 2 to 3 times until mixture is smooth and spreadable. With the food processor running, drizzle the oil into the dip. If mixture becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time until the dip is the right consistency.
  2. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight to blend the flavours before serving.
